Description

Leave the Gap Lake Trail #108 once you hit North Gap Lake. The trail climbs a bit before skirting the edges of the Shelf Lakes. There are great fishing opportunities back here. The trail just sort of peters out at the outlet of a smaller, unnamed lake.

Overall, this trail features alpine hiking with rocks and some wet sections after the Shelf Lakes.

Short, relatively easy trail with trailhead in the subalpine. Can get crowded on weekends with fishermen, but mostly clears out at night.
